Fabulous 8.8 From 1,509 reviews

Very good 8.0
A very pleasant hotel in Santa Monica. Staff were excellent and so helpful, plus they let us check in early, were able to provide a late check out and also stored our bags after we'd checked out. A fee applies if you want to keep the room until 6pm but make sure you ask about it as soon as you check in as they only allow 2 day rate rooms if the hotel is full. Room was clean, big and airy with 2 windows (corner room). Bathroom was spotless and had nice toiletries. Coffee machine provided, small fridge and spacious safe. Hair dryer was adequate for short hair but might take a while to dry thick or long hair. Surprisingly a complimentary breakfast buffet was included with coffee, orange juice, fresh fruit and several bakery choices. Vending machines provided a choice of snacks and drinks but there is no restaurant in the hotel. The reception staff however can provide a list of nearby restaurants and some do delivery to the hotel. There is a local bus within a minute's walk to go down to the beach and again the reception staff can provide details. The area is quite safe for walking around in the evening. A good choice for a short break in Los Angeles.

Service at Gateway was amazing. They treated us so well, early check in, complementary breakfast, free onsite parking and a free bottle of wine to celebrate our honeymoon. Hotel was clean and have no complaints. Would definitely stay again. Thank you to Ana at reception :)

The hotel needs a restaurant and the minibar in the room was empty. It needs to be stocked. Breakfast sucked I didn’t bother having it. Apart from that very clean room and excellent staff.

The Gateway has great friendly staff, clean rooms and access to a garage for car parking. Great value for money, safe environment although a few sirens filled the morning hours (ambulances from around 6am). Not the hotels fault at all... just a slight inconvenience.

We'll stay again as the hotel is nice and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is okay. Parking is a plus. The only issue we had was that the toilet malfunctioned in the middle of our stay and they are unable to fix it. So we had to go to another room in a different level to access a toilet and bathroom, it's not their fault but good thing they found an available room for us to use the bathroom.

A bit far from the action. It was a few miles from the beach and a 30 minute walk to downtown Santa Monica.
